This blog will feature highlights of programming by Falls Cable Access, a not-for-profit organization located in Menomonee Falls High School.
The public is invited to 2 Voters Forums this week at the Menomonee Falls Community Center. Tuesday evening (Aug. 19th), Falls Cable Access and specifically "Village Voices" is sponsoring the first forum which includes all of the candidates for 24th Assembly position vacated by retiring Rep. Sue Jeskewitz and the candidates for Wisconsin 5th district Congressional seat. The forum start promptly at 7:00. Questions were chosen by an independent committee, and there will be no questions from the audience. Karen Nelson host of Village Voices will be the moderator and ask the questions.
Thursday's forum (Aug. 21st) will include just the candidates for the Assembly position. Start time is also 7:00 at the Community Center with a similar format and different questions. The moderator and sponsor are finalizing the forum at this time. A third forum sponsored by the Menomonee Falls Community Chamber is in the works, more on that as it developers.
These forums are being taped by Falls Cable Access to be shown on Channel 14 n the Falls and copies are being made for Germantown to run on their cable system also. Those that don't have cable in the 24th district (I'm telling you, it's better and offers more interaction) are invited to see the candidates in person so they can make an informed choice come election day.
Well, school starts on the 2nd of September, and the word is that almost everything will be complete in the high school. There will be some re-location of some of the music department classes and media studies is not a lock yet either. But in both cases the new areas aren't essential to the first few weeks of classes and it is more important to finish them without cutting corners. The will be ready soon enough and from what I have seen the citizens of Menomonee Falls will be very impressed with the changes and upgrades they have provided for the future of Menomonee Falls education. As for the cable studio, the construction crew has been very accommodating, but just about once a week someone kicks out a cable or trips a breaker sending channel 14 to black. They promised my office would be ready for re-assembling the equipment used to broadcast our signal, on Monday the 18th and we have a stack of new programs to go on the air. I will find out in an hour or so if that is true.
NEXT WEEK ON CHANNEL 14
Army Newswatch has a few new shows and we will air them all as we catch up. Families of our service personnel are always looking to this program for inside information on the environment of their loved ones.
Reel Movie with Matt & Paul has their remote show in the can and waiting to be aired. Although it previews summer blockbusters that have been out for a while, my guess is that once the kids are back in school that may be the time to take in a good movie. Still don't know how the boys sat through "Sex in the City" but didn't see "Mamma Mia".
Village Voices will return to regularly scheduled programming when the studio is open, but the Voters Forum will be a special edition of the show.
FOCUS on Our Children will be airing some re-runs of last years shows that are still pertinent to this school year including a visit with the new school board members.
